So since for all of October I only did Blogoween so I sadly couldn’t do any reviews, but its November now so be ready for lots of them. Today I’m gonna review The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzie Lee (the second book in the Montauge siblings series)
REVIEW OF THE LADY”S GUIDE TO PETTICOATS AND PIRACY BY MACKENZI LEE
So for those who don’t know, this book is the Sequel to The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.
“A year after a whirlwind of a grand tour with her brother Monty, Felicity Montague has returned to England with two goals in mind avoid the marriage proposal of a lovestruck suitor and enroll in medical school. However, her passion for medicine won’t be enough in the eyes of the administrators, who think only men are suited for science. But when a window of opportunity opens—a doctor she idolizes is marrying an old friend of hers in Germany. Felicity believes that he could change her future, but she has no money to make the trip. Luckily, a mysterious young woman is willing to pay Felicity’s way, so long as she’s allowed to travel with Felicity disguised as her maid. In spite of her suspicions, Felicity agrees, but once the girl’s true motives are revealed, Felicity becomes part of a perilous quest that leads them from the German countryside to the promenades of Zürich to secrets lurking beneath the Atlantic.”
A Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy 5 🌟
Anyway if you’ve read the first book or want to, this review wont contain any spoilers. I read the first book during the summer and didn’t really enjoy it, which really surprised me because I had heard a lot of positive feedback on it. Anyway I saw this book on edelweiss (thank you so much to them for sending me an e-arc) and decided to read it and give this series a second chance and hope to enjoy it more than the first one.
I ended up loving up this book, it was everything I hoped The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue to be. It was funny and entertaining, also I loved the LGBTQ+ rep in the book. Felicity was just such a good protagonist she was sassy, clever and quite realistic. I hate it when authors make very 1 dimensional main characters. I loved the little Monty/Percy moments we got during the book. The thing that made me decided to give this series a second chance, is that there are so many plot-twist and the book really has more to it that the synopsis would suggest.
Even though I gave this book a 5/5 which it totally deserved. There are a few things that I wanted to talk about. THis is a very fast paced book so sometimes I got a bit confused but to be honest that happens to me in 70% of books. The other thing that is pretty related to this is that sometimes as I said it would be very fast pace while in other times it would drag on a bit, but it has a very big plot with many sub-plots so that makes sense
Can we just talk about the golden trio right here Johanna/Sim/Felicity those three just stole the show they were each so different but all opinionated (which we love) sure at first they wanted to kill each other but they became quite good friends in the end. I just love how this set in the 1800’s but that it never stopped them.
Sim: We stan our feisty queen I have to say that I didn’t like her that much at first but by the end of the book she was an amazing character.
So I’m kinda to lazy to talk about everyone but they were all amazing characters expect for the antagonist.
Well that concludes my review of The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy it wasn’t one of my all-time favourites but for sure a 5 🌟 .
